Gianluca Aicardi

  • Name: Gianluca "Kumagoro" Aicardi
  • Preferred Format: Modern, Commander, Legacy Tribal Wars, Limited

About:

"I hail from Genoa, Italy.

"When I don't write about Magic, I write about film and television. In general, I write a lot.

"When I play Magic, I usually play something with green in it. I don't know why I like green so much, I'm not even so concerned about the environment—though I'm concerned enough.

"When I don't play Magic, I play things like X-Wing or Zombicide. But mostly I watch films and TV shows.

"When I do things I don't like to do as much as playing games and watching films, I'm a freelance translator, editor, and proofreader. I also worked as head of programming for a couple film festivals.

"I might have some mild OCD."

World Championship XXVII Recap: Rogue Nation

By Kumagoro (2021-10-14)

In a Standard field that appeared more or less solved, nothing really went as expected, with two largely dismissed "rogue" lists earning their place in the finals with confidence. Japanese draw-go specialist Yūta Takahashi ultimately took home the grand prize with his own brew of Izzet Dragons.

Rotation Grief: Core Set 2021, Part 2

By Kumagoro (2021-09-08)

The Standard rotation is upon us again! Time to acknowledge the disappearance from our decks of all the cards from the four rotating sets. We end this journey of grief (or perhaps jubilation) by looking at the red, green, multicolored, and colorless cards Standard will lose when Core Set 2021 rotates out.
